The effects of atropine on bladder contractions evoked by sacral ventral root stimulation were investigated in two species of New World monkey (marmoset and cebus) and in paraplegic man. The findings were then compared to those previously obtained for the cat and two species of Old World monkey (rhesus and baboon). The results show the marmoset and cebus to represent a transitional stage between the complete sensitivity of the bladders of Old World monkeys to atropine and the relative… CONTINUE READING
